Angry Boot Dialogue - WTF does it go ???


So, I boot the system. Because I'm a relative "nugget" at this "linux lark", I haven't managed to get rid of all that bloody dialogue that goes shooting up the screen during the boot process (i.e. with nice reassuring, progress bars and fancy bootsplash screens).

Ok, that said, most things scroll up, and on the right of the screen you get [ok], but I've noticed a couple of the lines that have [!!], which I have to presume is similar to when you look at the /var/log/Xorg.0.log and see the [II], [ww] and [EE] things to show you what may, or may not be going wrong with an X server.

But I can't find where it goes too. Surely it must end up in a log of some kind. If so which one?

Or maybe if most stuff is starting Ok, then it only retain's any [!!] things to enable me to find out what's not "happening" correctly. If that's the case, again, where the hell does it go?

Or do I really only have the option to "scroll lock" and write down any bits that show up as [!!] and then search/post/google ??

During boot up, I get about 4 or 5 [ !! ] warnings/comments, there's only 1 of them listed in dmesg, plus, when I close down/reboot, I get another 2 different ones, which aren't listed either.

Surely there must be a location that they are stored, maybe for a limited period by date and/or time etc etc?
